Regular Maintenance for Peace of Mind

Your Toyota vehicle represents a major investment, and taking an active role in maintaining it will help you protect this investment.  Proper maintenance will help extend the life of your Toyota and preserve its value.  In addition to helping you avoid costly repairs down the road, regular maintenance will optimize your Toyota's performance, safety, and fuel efficiency.

In addition to changing your motor oil regularly at factory-recommended intervals, here are some simple, yet effective, ways to maximize the life of your vehicle and its many components: 

  • Replace worn out wiper blades to ensure that you have a clear view of the road ahead under all conditions.
  • Inspect your brakes at regular intervals according to your Toyota's recommended maintenance intervals.
  • Pay attention to tire pressures - losing just a few pounds of pressure in your tires can noticeably reduce fuel economy and significantly shorten the life of your tires.
  • Read your Toyota Owner's Manual. It will tell you everything you need to know about your vehicle.

Maximizing Tire Life

Mungenast Alton Toyota recommends that tires be rotated every 5,000 miles even if they don't show signs of obvious wear. Tire Rotation Service can often be performed during routine oil changes, since the vehicle will be lifted up off the ground. We'll inspect your tread and check for uneven wear, measure tread depth, and check your tire pressure. Having your tires re-balanced is an additional service we offer to promote even tread wear, and can easily be performed while your vehicle's tires are being rotated. See your service adviser for details.   

Why Use Synthetic Motor Oil?

Today's sophisticated engine systems require a lubricant designed specifically for improved engine performance, increased fuel efficiency, and reduced engine deposits, and your newer Toyota is no exception. Many late-model Toyota vehicles are certified for a new zero weight synthetic lubrication standard (SAE 0W-20). Our 0W-20 oil is a type of low-viscosity synthetic oil formulated to provide uniform lubrication and reduce friction throughout the engine. Lighter than conventional engine oil, 0W-20 evenly and uniformly bathes your engine's moving parts, meaning less wear and tear, better thermal stability, and increased engine efficiency.
